In this session we worked on more group riding skills. We practiced riding at slow speed through an obstacle course made up of cones to help to develop our skills when riding on the road where there is traffic, junctions, people etc. I mainly ride a BMX so it was good to transfer some of those skills over to road riding.
We all had a go at a 1km time trial (we each had a turn at doing the fastest lap) which tested everyone's fitness and skill levels at high speed.
We also practiced more bike handling skills (i.e. riding one handed, drinking from a bottle, passing items to other riders).
We ended with a group race (3v3) where we decided on what tactics we would use to try and beat the other team. Looking forward to getting out on the road with the group next week!
